TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Two Republicans who worked for Bob Dole and former Gov. Bill Graves are joining Democrat Jim Slattery's U.S. Senate campaign team.

Nelson and Judy Krueger (CREW-ger) endorsed Slattery and joined his campaign steering committee. Nelson Krueger was an administrative assistant for Dole in Kansas, his wife served as campaign manager for Graves and later secretary of appointments and deputy chief of staff.

Slattery faces Lee Jones of Overland Park in the August primary. The winner faces incumbent Republican Pat Roberts in November.

Slattery represented the 2nd District of eastern Kansas in the House in 1983-94, giving up his seat to run for governor. After losing that race, he joined a Washington law and lobbying firm.
